Indeed the EditorComponent removes the slashes from self closing tags. I know that it looks odd that the pasted content is modified, but according to the spec(see p.6) they are optional and omitting them does not render the tag invalid.
Nevertheless I have logged an issue on our issue tracker here - https://github.com/telerik/kendo-angular/issues/2891
I hope this helps.
